You are Amazing Flamingo

Good morning! I'm back with another card today using the new Among the Stars release from Simon Says Stamp! I played a lot with the pineapple from the Warm Weather Stamp Set with Matching Dies before - but today I finally popped out that little flamingo that was calling my name too and put together this bright happy card! Doesn't it just scream summer to you?!?!?

I did some ink smooshing on the background with distress inks - originally I was going to do a blue background, but as I was looking through my distress inks, and pulling out Abandoned Coral for the flamingo - Twisted Citron just practically jumped out at me! Totally had to use it for the background, and SOOO glad I did it that way!

The sentiment is from another set I loved and only recently got my hands on called Sketch Ranunculus - I loved the sentiments on it and have a feeling they will be super versatile! Added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins, jute twine, a scallop border and some pretty pattern paper along the bottom, and popped up the flamingo using clear foam adhesive so it wouldn't show!

Here are links to the products I used on this including affiliate links where possible. Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!!!
